A pieced-together meme

What do you dread about the holiday season?
*Not being able to fulfill the expectations that people have of me when I really want to. Although, truthfully, the holidays are not so "dreadful" anymore in that regard. I'm probably more afraid of not being able to fulfill my own needs and expectations.

List 3 things that you never tire of doing.
*Being with my dog.

What are some things from your childhood that you wish all children could have or experience?
*Being able to be outside for hours at a time without interruption.
*Hours of pretend play.
*Hours of engaging play with no toys or props of any kind.
*The blessing of a faith.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
*When I was in kindergarten, I wanted to be a waitress because I wanted to learn to carry a tray over my head.
*In 2nd grade I wanted to be a nun so I wouldn't have to learn math
(I'd already given up on math at that point!)
*In 4th grade I wanted to be a teacher.

What are some things that people are always surprised to find out about you?
*That I'm related to Robert Fulton.
*That I'm related to Charlemagne.
*That I consider myself shy.

If you've read this far, consider yourself tagged!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
